Personal Injury Claims

Discussing the types of damages in a Personal Injury Claims

When accidents happen, there is no part of our bodies that is hundred percent safe. And when you suffer an injury, it is most likely that there are personal injury claims for that injury. What is unfortunate is that the victims of the accident move on with their lives with the physical and mental trauma.

They don’t know if there is a way they can redeem some of that lost earnings that went into hospital bills and recovery matters.

What are Personal Injury Claims?

Personal Claims cover all accidents where you received an injury caused to you by the other party. Whether you suffered it from a medical treatment or a casual public accident, you claim against the one responsible for the accident and your loss.

The person injured in this scenario has to face financial loss on top of the physical and mental torture. This is where a personal injury claim comes into play.

Personal Injury Claims is a legal process where you can apply and win compensation. Now this compensation is not just for your physical troubles but also everything else that you had to compromise while you were injured, whether it was financial or psychological.

Personal Injury Claims and their different types?

like any other legal sector, personal injury claims have also set its legal merits. Each personal injury case presented to the court is demonstrated and viewed based on those merits or categories. In the case of Personal Injury Claims, those merits are general damages and special damages.

Now let’s have a look at general and special damages.

General damages

General damages usually refer to the physical and mental stress caused by the accident. The effect that the accident had on your life whether it was physical or psychological has a massive impact on your compensation.

When the compensation is calculated the nature of your general damages will come into play. 

Special Damages

The financial damages sustained from a personal injury accident are covered in special damages. the victims of these accidents have to face severe financial loss in the shape of medical bills, transportation bills, rehabilitation expenses, and much more.

This category is further separated into two parts,

Special damages for past losses

Which covers the expenses the victim suffered due to the accident, let’s say a cosmetic injury.

Special damages for future losses

This amount is rewarded to improve the victim’s way of life.

The Legal Time Limit for a Personal Injury Claim?

Three years is the legal time limit for almost all claims and that is the same for anyone applying for a personal injury claim.

However, the time limit does not apply in two cases, either,

the victim of the personal injury accident is mentally unwell or

they are under the age of 18
